Getting error: Process 21724 failed to create IPC queue __FCS_REGISTRY__ : Failed to allocate shared

Sep 27, 2013 9:24 AM

FMIS 4.5 is giving this error in core log file:


Process 21724 failed to create IPC queue __FCS_REGISTRY__ : Failed to allocate shared memory.


Restarting FMIS doesn't seem to help, I have to physically restart the server.


Server has 8 GB RAM. 'freemem' report:


             total       used       free     shared    buffers     cached

Mem:       8164972    4622744    3542228          0    1197448    1851580

-/+ buffers/cache:    1573716    6591256

Swap:     10217332          0   10217332


What is this error about and are there any settings I can change to allocate FMIS more memory?

    can you paste the output of:


    su -c "ulimit -a" ams



    replace ams with the username of the account youre using to run the media server as.



    it should look similar to:


    root@ns1 [~]# su -c "ulimit -a" ams
